Ruminant Robbins fails to attain Zihuatanejo
With deafening echoes of The Shawshank Redemption, a cow recently attempted to escape the whirling blades of the abbatoir by crawling through a sewer. Sadly the brave bovine was not spared the chop. Not even the French will eat a cow after it’s been trudging through excrement, but it was humanely destroyed, having injured itself during the escape.
Coincidentally, a baby elephant recently found itself swimming in circles, having blundered into a well in Sri Lanka. The villagers dismantled part of their well to set it free. But note how their kindness is repayed. That’s gratitude for you.
